Rediscovering the Christmas Season

27% of churchgoers say they read the Bible at least once per week outside of church attendance.

58% of church leaders read the Bible daily.

- ComRes for the Bible Society, published 2008

These two statistics are almost unbelievable to me. Almost 3 out of 4 Christians actually read God's precious Word do not read the Bible from week to week outside of a church service in the UK.

Even more crazy is that almost 1 in 2 church leaders do not read the Book that should be core to everything they are teaching.

Something needs to change. Really!

But if you find yourself as a non reader don't go a guilt trip just make a decision to change. This Christmas season is a perfect time to start.

Youversion have developed a simple short daily reading plan called "Rediscovering the Christmas Season". Start it on 1st December on your smart phone or web.

Honestly it will revolutionise your life.
